Hi Bold Bakers!

I don’t know about you but I absolutely love cookies! Classic Chocolate Chip Cookies, hearty Oatmeal Raisin Cookies, rich Peanut Butter Cookies and gooey Salted Caramel Cookies…the combinations are endless! Since there are so many mouthwatering flavors I decided to create one Crazy Cookie Dough to fulfill all of those homemade cookie cravings!

Similar to my idea for Crazy Dough, which was one bread dough that can be made into so many different sweet and savory breads, I’ve created one truly Crazy Cookie Dough! This dough is the absolute perfect blank canvas for all of your favorite cookie flavors! It has the perfect balance of brown sugar, white sugar, melted butter and salt. The result is beyond decadent bakery-style cookies. This means no matter which flavorings you choose to add in, this cookie is perfectly crisp around the edges and chewy gooey in the center. Why make one boring batch of the same cookie, when you can make a variety of your favorites!

From the smell that fills the house to that warm and fuzzy comfort I get from knowing I have a full cookie jar, there is just nothing like a homemade, fresh out of the oven cookie. I can’t wait for you all to give the recipe a spin and make these cookies your own. Let’s face it what day can’t be improved by a truly delicious cookie?

Chocolate Chip Cookie

Let’s start with a classic! My advice for making the BEST-EVER Chocolate Chip Cookie is to use dark chocolate that has been cut into chunks. Dark chocolate with a cocoa solid percentage of at least 72% is what you want to give you that perfect bittersweet richness.

Peanut Butter Cookie

My husband’s favorite so I gotta throw this one into the mix. Use your favorite peanut butter, smooth or chunky, to mix into your Crazy Cookie Dough. For extra crunch toss in a few salted, toasted peanuts too.

Oatmeal Raisin Cookie

An oldie but a goodie, this classic cookie cannot be over looked. Using ingredients that you would normally have on hand, toss in some rolled oats and raisins to your Crazy Cookie Dough and you will be delighted with the results.

Birthday Cake Cookie

Birthday Cake is 1 of my 5 a day! Seriously, I try whenever possible to throw sprinkles into everything!! To create a Birthday Cake Cookie add some of your favorite sprinkles and white chocolate chips into your Crazy Cookie Dough and enjoy the results.

  1. Whisk the flour, salt, and baking soda in a medium bowl. Set aside.

  3. Whisk in one egg to the sugar-butter mixture, stirring until it's fully mixed in. Scrape the sides of the bowl with your spatula. Whisk in the second egg and the vanilla and scrape the sides of bowl again.
  4. Add the dry ingredients to the wet and stir with the spatula to fully combined. Chill the dough for a minimum of 30 minutes to 2 hours before scooping.
  5. Using a quarter scoop measure scoop the cookie dough base into roughly 10-12 cookies.
  6. Chocolate Chip Cookie: Press your chocolate chunks into your base cookie and fold the cookie dough over itself to make sure the chocolate chunks are distributed through out
  7. Oatmeal raisin Cookie: Using your hand make a well in the center of the dough. Add in the oatmeal and the raisins. Fold the cookie dough over itself to make sure the oatmeal and raisins are distributed through out.
  8. Double Chocolate Cookie: Using your hand make a well in the center of the dough. Add in the cocoa powder and chocolate chunks. Fold the cookie dough over itself to make sure the ad-ins are distributed through out.
  9. Peanut Butter Cookie: Using your hand make a well in the center of the dough. Add in the peanut butter and chopped peanuts. Fold the cookie dough over itself to make sure the peanut butter and peanuts are distributed through out.
  10. Chocolate Hazelnut Cookie: Using your hand make a well in the center of the dough. Add in the Nutella and chopped hazelnuts. Fold the cookie dough over itself to make sure the Nutella and nuts are distributed through out.
  11. S'more Cookie: Using your hand make a well in the center of the dough. Add in the graham crackers, marshmallow and chocolate. Fold the cookie dough over itself to make sure the s'more ad-ins are distributed through out.

  14. When ready to bake preheat the oven to 375ºF (185oC). Place the cookies on a larger parchment lined cookie sheet about 4 inches apart. Bake for 10-12 minutes until you can still see it is doughy in the center but browning around the edge. Resist the urge to bake for longer as you will over bake it and lose that gooey center.
  15. Let cool on the sheet for 5 minutes then enjoy. Store in an air tight container for up to 3 days.

    Made it and they were delicious. I like the sweetness but my husband prefers less sweet. Do I reduce the white or brown sugar? By how much? Will it change the texture and appearance of the cookie? Because I hope not since I love them as they are.

    • Gemma Stafford on September 21, 2017 at 12:49 am

      Hi Maria,
      Another great question today. These are sweet, but the sugar can indeed be reduced, and by as much as 1/2. cut out the white sugar, as the brown adds a little moisture to the bake. Be prepared for a different result, the cookie will most likely be a little thicker, but it will be good!
      Gemma 🙂

        That was quick. I appreciate that you reply to your followers in a timely manner. Thanks so much again!

    Hello. First of all amazing recipe. I baked the cookie and their taste was lovely but I had some trouble my dough was kind of sticky and my cookies were not baked underneath. Where did I go wrong?
    Also my microwave has temperature upto 180°C so should i still give 10-12 mins? And can I use normal paper like from a dairy?

    • Gemma Stafford on September 19, 2017 at 1:07 am

      Hi Areeba,
      It sounds like the mode of baking you used for this bake was off.
      did you change the recipe in any way? Do you know how to operate your oven properly?
      You should be selecting convection mode 180C. No microwaves, just heat. You can bake these on a buttered tray, or buttered grease proof paper if you do not have baking paper.
      If you dough feels a little sticky, resting it in the fridge for a few minutes will firm it up. Go back to the recipe to make sure you have it right.
      I hope this helps,
      Gemma 🙂

    I just made these; delicious! I added the Nutella & 1/2 bag chocolate chips. The cookies are flat, but are the perfect blend of crunchy edges & chewy centers. Thank you!!!!

    • Gemma Stafford on September 19, 2017 at 1:25 am

      Hi heather,
      That is great! If you refrigerate the dough prior to baking it should not be so flat! Good though, I am happy to hear this,
      Gemma 🙂

    Been using this basic recipe for a chocolate chip cookie in a mug for a while and lately, I’ve got a new flavor that is just out of this world- white chocolate, crushed macadamia nuts, and diced strawberries. I’d strongly recommend trying it. I’m sure you will love it too.

    • Gemma Stafford on September 19, 2017 at 1:46 am

      Hi Nancy,
      You are a genius! Thank you for this, it will be an inspiration for other Bold Bakers,
      Gemma 🙂
